Dar es Salaam computer meltdown

Here we are in Dar, and I had expected my problems to eminate from the suspect travel advisory about terrorism, but no. I am being punished by computers…

The boss here at TechnoServe Dar wanted to be able to backup his laptop, and I suggested upgrading his computer to Windows XP Pro, from Home, since Pro has a nice backup feature, and Home has nothing. Big mistake. Seems that upgrading has highlighted a hardware fault with the computer, and now it is stuck in the middle of the upgrade process with no hope of moving backwards or forwards. I am tearing my hair out here…
